Unchanged Newcastle Team For Big Everton Test

nufc emblemeverton fc

Alan Pardew has kept the same starting side from Saturday, when we beat Crystal Palace 1-0 with a goal late into stoppage time, and that made it three wins in our last four games.

Hatem Ben Arfa, Sylvain Marveaux and Shola Ameobi are again on the bench, and they could see some action tonight against a very good Everton side – and we expect to see Ben Arfa on in the second half.

Only 26% of fans think we can win the game tonight – so there’s plenty of opportunity for the lads to shock us on the positive side.

How Will Newcastle Fare Against Everton?

Loading ... Loading ...

Everton are 9 points above Newcastle with a game in hand, so if we have any chance of catching the Toffees this season, we’ll need to take all 3 points tonight, and the best chance of doing that is if Papiss Cisse has some of that old confidence back, and can convert the chances he will get tonight.

For Everton, former Newcastle loan player Sylvain Distin is at center-back, and danger man Romelu Lukaku is up front.

Howay The Lads!!

Teams:

Newcastle (4-4-2): Tim Krul; Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, Mike Williamson, Fabricio Coloccini (c), Paul Dummett; Moussa Sissoko, Cheick Tiote, Vurnon Anita, Yoan Gouffran; Luuk de Jong, Papiss Cisse
Substitutes: Rob Elliot, Massadio Haidara, Steven Taylor, Dan Gosling, Sylvain Marveaux, Hatem Ben Arfa, Shola Ameobi

Everton (4-2-3-1): Tim Howard; Seamus Coleman, John Stones, Sylvain Distin, Leighton Baines; James McCarthy, Gareth Barry; Leon Osman (c), Ross Barkley, Gerard Deulofeu; Romelu Lukaku
Substitutes: Joel Robles, Luke Garbutt, Antolin Alcaraz, Tyias Browning, Aiden McGeady, Kevin Mirallas, Steven Naismith

Referee: Lee Mason (Greater Manchester)

    Fabian Schär, young CB who plays for Basel and his contract run out 2015. Much more likely.

    GT…I’ll just be doing some SketchUp drawings and renderings tonight while consuming some Cafetiere Coffee :D

    Have mentioned Schär a few times as a player I’d like to see us go for, great young prospect with plenty of game time under his belt

  • 4 noladonna // Mar 25, 2014 at 6:55 PM

    surprise,surprise nobody saw that team selection coming

  • 5 GeordieTwo // Mar 25, 2014 at 6:56 PM

    What are you rendering and SketchingUP jesper?

  • 6 toonarmydownsouth // Mar 25, 2014 at 6:57 PM

    No real surprises as to the line up tbh

    HBA looked rusty against Palace initially and given how the coaching team have said he’s been struggling with fitness he was never going to start tonight
    Would be nice to see him get a full 45 mins in the second half though, see if the consistency is there in his performance

    Be good to see if Marv could get more than 10 minutes, not a big fan of his but be nice to see where the squad stands and if he has a future, or at the very least drive his fee up a bit

  • 7 beefman13 // Mar 25, 2014 at 6:57 PM

    Ukn hell, Shola n Gosling are on their bikes this summer, why not include Adam Armstrrong, Everton woud know nowt about the lad and he would be buzzing to get on the pitch at St James, ive always said they wont drop a senior for a youngin, yet again they have a chance to faze a good lad in and have not.

    Come on lads lets have a real go at Everton tonight, we can relax more then them, they still fancy a champs league place, no tempting fate but i think they are still a bit short, interesting how Kenwright always seems to get away with crying skint!!! far from it i bet.

  • 8 toonarmydownsouth // Mar 25, 2014 at 6:58 PM

    noladonna
    Given the injuries what possible changes could of been made?

  • 9 toonarmydownsouth // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:00 PM

    Armstrong is on international duty, same as Saturday

    I am changing my preferred suggestion to Schar from Cheikhou Kouyaté at Anderlecht, they have conceded far to many goals in Belgian League.

  • 12 Ibizatoon // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:03 PM

    Jesper @10…Why oh why would you need to mention that much detail?

    You ask too much of me mate.

  • 13 Bambams // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:03 PM

    Young Adam Armstrong signs his contract…He will be full of confidence, no pressure on him at all, Toon are safe, we ain’t trying for Europe…. And we pick Gosling and Shola !!!

    Cant believe this, how we have changed so much since the KK/BR days.They would of had this youngin feeling 10 feet high and would of at least had him on the bench.

  • 14 mag // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:04 PM

    Dummett and Coloccini the weaknesses in the team Dummett offers nothing going forward on the left.

  • 15 Jam only For H.ben Arfa // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:04 PM

    Tonight Ben Arfa will give an assist To De Jong !! ;-)

  • 16 GeordieTwo // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:04 PM

    Cool jesper.

  • 17 Bambams // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:04 PM

    Toonarmydownsouth…
    bugger, wish i had seen your post fella re Armstrong !

    Take it all back, Pards and Carvs well done never doubted you two !!

  • 18 santonthenewmaldini // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:05 PM

    @beefman

    Thats true about Kenwright but there is a HUGE difference with him and Ashley!! He is pretty honest with the fans and any sales they have made have been invested back into the team for instance they spent the Fellaini money pretty quickly and if they sell Baines for big money in the summer they will spend that too he also employs people to run the club properly such as the youth team

    Ashley gets Pardew to lie in public saying we are signing people and puts out fake press statements and does not employ the right people at the club

    I know who I would rather have as owner out of the 2 of them !!

    On tonights game why do we always play the same team !!?We never mix it up after a win apart from to bring Colo/Remy back we are going to get outnumbered in midfield and be 2 goals down before we make any changes

    We should play 5 in midfield when we do not have the ball De Jong will need to seriously up his game as does Cisse they need to come back into midfield to win the ball back or we could be in for a tough night

  • 19 noladonna // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:05 PM

    Well me personally i would like to see goofy upfront in place of gouffran and id also like to see haidara get a run out. Maybe try dummet left mid sure pardew said he was gonna try some players in diffrent position’s don’t quote me on that thou

  • 20 francesco-hba // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:05 PM

    @8

    what change?
    Maybe the one who made the crystal palace’s game become a victory and not a boring 0-0!! How can De jong is still a starter?!! Ben arfa has to show his best each time to win a starting place…. but De jong has nothing to prove?

  • 21 noladonna // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:06 PM

    sorry in place of de jong haha

  • 22 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:06 PM

    Ibiza…do you want one of these chairs mate ;) lol

  • 23 toonarmydownsouth // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:08 PM

    francesco-hba
    Mate they have said time and time again he’s not fully fit, so why throw straight in 3 days later and risk losing him for the rest of the season?

  • 24 toonarmydownsouth // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:09 PM

    Nola
    Agree would like to see Goofy get a run but not sure about a left side of Haidara and Dummett, think Everton would slaughter them!

  • 25 francesco-hba // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:11 PM

    if this injury is true, ok I agree

    but I have a doubt…

    anyway, if Ben arfa can’t, i prefer Marveaux and put Gouffy upfront, De jong is maybe a good striker, but he has to show more to deserve a starting place

  • 26 mag // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:17 PM

    Marveuax hasn’t shown anything in his game to warrant a start and he should be moving on this summer along with Obertan.

  • 27 Thump // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:19 PM

    I reckon De Jong might break his duck today. He’s sharp but has zero confidence at the moment. He looks so lost when he has a crack.

  • 28 Bambams // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:19 PM

    Boys what thoughts you got on Krul lately. I have not been to any of the last few games and only see highlights on TV.

    Is he still doing it…

  • 29 Online Guy // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:20 PM

    Ross Barkley..would make a good addition to GB Olympic diving squad. Begging free kicks around the box is a tactic Everton embrace…Hope ref is savvy tonight.

    Mike Jones out ..Lee mason In. Jones is ill

  • 30 mag // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:22 PM

    De Jong will be lucky to last 90 minutes without being subbed by his equally useless team mate Shola.

  • 31 70TWO // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:24 PM

    Playing the same team they need to play Anita / Tiote / Sissoko across midfield, rather than the lop sided formation they had with Gouffran leaving space on left wing. Unfortunately that is the exact same midfield that got it so wrong at Gudison Park. Will Gouffran and Cisse play on the wings in a 5 man midfield?

  • 32 noladonna // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:26 PM

    expecting another tough game tonight but sometimes in the evening kick offs the atmosphere can be electric at st james lets hope its one of those nights we need the fans to be the 12th man tonight……… bit gutted to miss the manc derby thou will be good viewing that

  • 33 Bambams // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:28 PM

    Jamie Redknapp is such a nacker as a commentator ……

    He ALWAYS makes a statement and then offers it to others forcing them to back him up ! Sorry for rant but cant believe Sky pay this idiot to be on TV

    Rant over

  • 34 mag // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:30 PM

    2-1 win to Newcastle United tonight Cisse and De Jong.

    I know being a toon fan is all about the doom and gloom but do u have any positive thoughts on anything toon related

  • 36 70TWO // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:34 PM

    Tiote v Osman – tasty!

  • 37 Online Guy // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:35 PM

    Did anyone notice Howard Webb almost dropping his whistle trying to get it into his mouth to blow for full time.?

    He could not wait to blow up for the end of the match on account if he had the time he would have had to go to the linesman to ask if he had seen Fulham player handle the ball from Tim’s flick towards the Fulham goal ..

    His excuse when asked was ..” I was unsighted and did not see it ” ! ..He could have went to either linesman ..he blew his whistle two seconds after the handball and nearly choked himself in his haste ..Cheat.

    The Fulham goal was preceded by a Newcastle player being halved from the back right in front of Webb..he stood looking right at the blatant foul and let Fulham carry on and go up field and score

    The Man needs investigating ..really .

  • 38 santonthenewmaldini // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:41 PM

    @Online Guy

    Agree on that Webb was shocking against Fulham but we really should not have needed the ref to help us beat them it was Pardew/Carver’s fault for not beating them we got what we deserved from that game we should have been pressuring them right from kick off will probably be the easiest 3 points they will get this season

  • 39 toon kk // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:41 PM

    Their will be some complaining on here shortly once we start getting ripped apart.
    Let’s hope I’m wrong.

  • 40 70TWO // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:42 PM

    Young Stones could be a weak link in their defence, hope to see Cisse / de Jong exploiting his naivety.

  • 41 Online Guy // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:42 PM

    Graham Courtney talks a load of Sh1te on talk sport

    Anyone ever met him ? I have, and I can say without hesitation or comebacks that he is the most Anal up his own Arse bloke I have ever had the misfortune to deal with.

    He likes putting the boot in to Newcastle United via Talk sport ..amazing he used to work for us ! no loyalty .

    right ..I’m done ..Football time.

  • 42 Blofal // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:43 PM

    You have to take it out of the hands of the ref… by scoring goals!

    Man shitty 1 up

  • 52 toonarmydownsouth // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:50 PM

    Honestly can’t call this match
    We really don’t have an overly attack minded squad
    Tiote and Anita are not really attackers
    Goofy and Sissoko on the wings do well but aren’t the biggest threat
    De Jong, doing okay as a hold up player but doesn’t look a big goal threat
    Cisse, bagged one, not as optimistic as others that the floodgates will now open!
    Mbiwa didn’t look great getting forward on the flank, Dummett looked good at the back but not overly special going forward

    Then our bench the only real attacking options are HBA and Marveuax, one struggling with fitness (grew into the palace game mind) and the other hasn’t played regular football for nearly 3 years!!

    Then you look at Everton
    Seamus Coleman, Playing very well, attacking the flanks and getting in amongst the goals
    Sylvain Distin, Dangerous from set pieces
    Leighton Baines, huge danger on the flanks deadly from set pieces, and we give a lot free kicks away from 20-25 yards
    James McCarthy, gets forward and links the midfield well
    Ross Barkley, Very busy player, very quick great with the ball could really be dangerous tonight
    Gerard Deulofeu, Lightning quick, not on great form but with Yanga playing out of position he could give him a nightmare Romelu Lukaku, Enough said!

    And with Aiden McGeady and Kevin Mirallas to come off the bench there a very very dangerous team

    Bit skeptical i know!

  • 53 Nufc-83 // Mar 25, 2014 at 7:51 PM

    We’re making it easy for them atm

  • 58 Mike's Iron Curtain // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:03 PM

    Gouffran looking out of sorts. 3 or 4 loose touches already, under no pressure. Cisse looking sharp. Sissoko full of beans.

  • 59 nufcursed // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:06 PM

    gouffran is a massive player for us!
    de jong is so poor! way too slow for the premier league.
    if we sign him permanently we have no football vision at all at this club

  • 60 Mike's Iron Curtain // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:06 PM

    Snipers in the stand I see. How Tiote just lightly harrying makes Barry’s legs collapse from beneath him beats me.

  • 61 santonthenewmaldini // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:06 PM

    As predicted we are getting outnumbered in midfield

  • 62 valle // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:06 PM

    Wow we are bad… Not controlling the ball and not seing the easy pass. Thats a recipe for loosing both possession and a football match.

  • 63 nufcursed // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:06 PM

    mike’s iron curtain?
    are you for real?
    gouffran showing some neat touches!
    you must not have paid attention!

  • 64 toonarmydownsouth // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:07 PM

    You’d think that the lads would be under instruction to just stand them up and not give away stupid free kicks on the edge of the area knowing Baines is one if the best set piece takers in the league

  • 65 Ravensd // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:07 PM

    aweful play there. Nice goal though

  • 66 TheToonKing // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:08 PM

    well….that’s it for tonight then. No way are we beating this team.

  • 67 Mike's Iron Curtain // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:08 PM

    Bollocks.

    Anita did everything right there. Placed himself perfectly and stalled them as much as possible, our team didn’t recover quickly enough and Colo’s slip handed him a free run at goal.

  • 68 toonarmydownsouth // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:08 PM

    Awful goal to concede, our players were falling all over each other!
    And that was from OUR corner, exactly the same situation as the Fulham goal, Cisse spurns a great chance, we take a sh1 te set piece and concede on the counter

  • 69 nufcursed // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:09 PM

    take de jong off right now!he’s useless, bloody awful.
    it hurts my eyes to see him play

  • 70 Marty-Toon // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:09 PM

    Why didn’t Anita push out on him and pressure him into the pass and an offside?
    Collo doing a theatrical fall too at just the perfect time

  • 71 Mike's Iron Curtain // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:09 PM

    Shut it! I’m watching very closely, thanks.

  • 72 Greebol1892 // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:10 PM

    Wtf was that by Colo….

  • 73 BuckLuck // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:12 PM

    Ashley and Pardew wanted dead or alive. For me it doesn’t matter how they fuuk out of Newcastle.

    Pardew has no attacking plan. There is absolutely no evidence that he has the slightest insight when it comes to modern attacking football.

    Newcastle United is just pure pain and frustration under Ashley and his distaster of a manager.

  • 74 Brutooon // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:12 PM

    Something random

    Lukaku 20 years old – 70 goals

    Shola Ameobi 34 years old – 77 goals

    Different between Class and Sh*t

  • 75 Mike's Iron Curtain // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:12 PM

    Another bad piece of control by Gouffran there. Looking like Jonas each week. Defensively solid, footballing skills deteriorating.

  • 76 toonarmydownsouth // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:15 PM

    Passing is so sloppy tonight
    Sad to say but we look like the away team here, we’re just letting Everton play there natural game and trying (badly) to hit them on the break

  • 77 Mike's Iron Curtain // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:16 PM

    If De Jong once had any great potential, I’m yet to see any glimmer of it. Bog standard, mediocre, no thrills target man. Could get many British players from the Championship that would have done the same thing. Charlie Austin would have been good for us, at least he can strike a ball pure and powerfully.

  • 78 Big Pappa Cissé // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:17 PM

    Game over now like .

    As soon as we go a goal down we never stage a comeback . Glad De Jong is only on loan, Christ .

  • 79 TurkishFan101 // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:17 PM

    WHY is DUMMET on the pitch??? WHY is HAIDARA on the BENCH???

    SOMEONE please… ?

  • 80 Mike's Iron Curtain // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:17 PM

    Dummet’s so basic. Was read so easily then.

  • 81 santonthenewmaldini // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:18 PM

    Only good thing about De Jong’s performance is it might mean we get him for about 2 million lol

  • 82 70TWO // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:18 PM

    There’s a goal coming for us.

  • 83 Mike's Iron Curtain // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:19 PM

    Anita playing well. So quick in movement and thought.

  • 84 Mike's Iron Curtain // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:19 PM

    …….but not a set-piece taker :lol:

  • 85 Big Pappa Cissé // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:20 PM

    @ Turkish

    God knows m8 . Dummet looks a decent player, but Haidara is miles ahead IMO .

  • 86 TurkishFan101 // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:20 PM

    Dummet looks lost mate, not decent at all. He should go back to the SPL where he belongs… Haidara as you said miles miles ahead…

  • 87 Mike's Iron Curtain // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:21 PM

    That was atrocious by Mbiwa. Just like that, another spell of increasing pressure is relieved by our own doing.

  • 88 Marty-Toon // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:21 PM

    Dummett although young and a good prospect,really doesn’t give a great delivery with his left boot

  • 89 TheToonKing // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:21 PM

    ohhh Debuchy how we need you back…Mbiwa is ridiculous at RB.

  • 90 valle // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:21 PM

    Dummet is better than Mabou at least, he is awfull at RB.

  • 91 70TWO // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:21 PM

    Why do they keep crossing/passing back instead of crossing into the box?

  • 92 nufcursed // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:22 PM

    cissé looking good.

    dummett, de jong and mbiwa not good enough

  • 93 valle // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:23 PM

    Dummett*

  • 94 toonarmydownsouth // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:23 PM

    Have any of our lads got a first touch?
    We just seem to boot it round the pitch in blind panic
    They either get rid the second they get it or dwell on the ball far too long it madness!

  • 95 Toon1978 // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:24 PM

    Dear me, we are sh1t.

  • 96 valle // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:25 PM

    Sissoko can be frustrating as well… He can be great at times, but at other times he dosnt look up and see players in good positions or throw the ball away with a bad pass/touch… All players can be guilty of that at times ofcourse, but it happens to often for him in my opinion.

  • 97 toon kk // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:25 PM

    It’s funny to think a lot seem to think we have a strong squad.

  • 98 Mike's Iron Curtain // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:25 PM

    70TWO

    We crossed it constantly for a few years to no great effect, now we’re gonna exclusively pull it back for a few years. It’s Pardew’s wily plan, you see. One dimension and only one, that’s the Pardew mantra.

  • 99 toonarmydownsouth // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:26 PM

    How the hell is that not a booking for Ross Barkley there?

  • 100 TheToonKing // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:26 PM

    didn’t we just have a penalty there ?!

  • 101 valle // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:28 PM

    The ref has no control McCarthy should have been booked there.

  • 102 Marty-Toon // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:28 PM

    Ref should’ve booked Barkley for the dive and a booking for kicking the ball away for whoever it was

  • 104 Mike's Iron Curtain // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:30 PM

    Gouffran having one of his worst games. Playing like a guy that’s only just been shown what a football is and is getting to grips with the basic physics of how it behaves.

  • 105 Blofal // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:30 PM

    Dummet is getting r@ped a new hole. All of their attacks have mostly came from the left..

  • 108 toonking // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:30 PM

    dummett might not look so good but debuchy took 6 months before looking the debuchy we see now enrique and colo took over a year before we saw the colo and enrique we know now, players don’t turn good over night and if you want pardew to start giving armstrong and cambell games then i suggest you don’t critise them who are already playing in the starting 11.

  • 109 Mike's Iron Curtain // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:31 PM

    De Jong over HBa was a ridiculous decision. Get quality in attack and leave our sub-par fullbacks to defend.

    Subs:

    HBA for Dejong.
    Marveaux for Gouffran.

    Cisse is looking lively and confident. Give him so service.

  • 110 Thump // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:33 PM

    Terrible defending for their goal and Barkley doing a very good job of impersonating Suarez’s ability on a diving board. Canny half, just need to compose ourselves a bit and plan our final ball a bit better.

  • 115 MosesNUFC // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:34 PM

    Mbiwa is not a right back, he is a CB. Ben arfa needs to come on for de jong, and haidara needs to come on for dummett.

  • 116 nufcursed // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:34 PM

    we’re so poor technically!
    none of our players have the skills to actually pass, control our dribble..

    Only creativity we have is HBA yet he ain’t playing.

  • 120 AaranD // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:37 PM

    HBA for one of the strikers, stick Gouffran up front and have HBA in the pockets. It may expose Dummet but that’s where the holding midfielders need to help out.
    Just need something more up top a cutting edge, we look so lackluster.

  • 121 toon kk // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:37 PM

    Cisse is playing well, as is Sissoko, Tiote and Colo (slip aside)
    What is more, its a cracking game, wide open, and the result doesn’t really matter so I can relax and enjoy the game a bit more than usual

  • 123 Big Pappa Cissé // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:38 PM

  • 128 Mike's Iron Curtain // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:41 PM

    What has an A Level in Maths got to do with English? I’m currently doing a Phd in structural engineering, so safe to say my mathematical abilities are beyond yours in any case, if A Level maths is the most you can boast of. The English language being the most difficult is an urban myth. Ending your barely passable sentences with fact doesn’t make it such.

  • 129 Toon Tang // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:42 PM

  • 130 Big Pappa Cissé // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:43 PM

    @ manx

    He is playing out of position so you can’t judge him as a CB in the last few games . He was great playing alongside Willo and we got clean sheets against Spurs & Chelsea but was dropped for Collo .

  • 131 Rotonda heights // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:44 PM

    Cursed

    You’re right there’s no cohesion and rarely has been under Pardew really. Team selection, tactics and subs are still fatally flawed.

    Dummet is massively over rated and his delivery largely disappointing. Can’t believe Haidara can’t get a game ahead of him.

    Gouffran is not a defensive left midfield and is totally wasted there.

    Without Ben Arfa and Marveaux, for all their faults, there is zero creativity.

    Everton are slick and inventive and mirror their manager.

    We are clueless, sluggish and predictable.

    Pardew will no doubt put all his hopes on Benny rescuing him again in the last 20.

  • 137 70TWO // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:47 PM

    Would love to hack into the telephone line, just to see if Pardew is above the tactical ability of “just run around”.

  • 138 Big Pappa Cissé // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:48 PM

    @ manx

    what does being in the middle of the pitch have to do with it when he is playing as full back ? . Its a totally different role FFS .

    Yet I see the almighty Collo escapes criticism for diving on the floor in the box and getting nowhere near Barkley .

  • 139 70TWO // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:51 PM

    I am glad to see some midfield intent that has seen us making some progress into the the last third, but from on the delivery or decision making has been poor. It seems to be due to the availability of strikers to pass to, as they are either being marked out of the game or lack movement.

  • 140 Big Pappa Cissé // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:51 PM

    De Jong is a Pardew player all over .

    Grafts hard and helps out defensively but has no flair or goal threat .

  • 141 Rotonda heights // Mar 25, 2014 at 8:53 PM

    Trouble is when you start with a defensive set up it’s difficult to change the mindset and exert real pressure.

    rather take a risk with benny & marv and go for a win from the off

    Typifies Gouffran. Grafts to win it back, no quality out on the wing.

    Now 2-0 – game over and it’s a mystery how we’re so comfortable in the top 10. Cabaye and Remy the difference makers, would be a different story if we had neither from the start of the season. So dull and ordinary.

    You know what, I am not shocked or surprised at all, cause many NUFC fans (you know who you are) have rightly stood behind Alan Pardew and Mike Ashley and took everything they have done to our club and are still behind them as long as they get a ticket and go to the match.

  • 207 Mike's Iron Curtain // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:16 PM

    Marveaux is one of the most criminally overlooked players in our history. Leading assist maker with irregular, bitty playing time last season, frozen out and used even more sparingly because he won’t run around like a blue ass fly, Pardew not having the gumption to recognise if you have players of his sort on, you’ll make the opposition chase more and you’ll create more chances, the old adage of attack being the best form of defence rings true, but his risk averse, stale brand of football endures and invites these kind of demoralising outcomes.

    Aside from the first few moments in the match, we haven’t made a single decent chance, at home, with apparently no pressure.

    The thing about this team is it has not had a decent LW or RW for years. The last one we had was Duff but since he was sold we have seen rubbish ones such as obatan, lazy types like marvo and very inconsistent ones such as HBA. If that’s not bad enough we have had our best striker sold two seasons. This year we see our most creative midfielder cabaye sold and he was also our only consistent scoring midfielder.

    The worst thing about all this is it will be makes building a team a nightmare for the manager.

    Great play by Benny,he should be on the left side not the right

  • 220 Mike's Iron Curtain // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:20 PM

    How’d he miss?

    HBA showing again why it’s plain stupid to omit him in favour of De Jong.

  • 221 dufuss // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:20 PM

    hope baines tore his sack

  • 222 JAMSHA // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:20 PM

    my granpa would have scored dat

  • 223 TheToonKing // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:20 PM

    well…Anita ….that just happened.

    Just crap players in this team that’s it. only 4-5 are first team material.

  • 224 Marty-Toon // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:20 PM

    The reffing is garbage

  • 225 jimiley // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:21 PM

    IF Pardew was at Man U he would be a world beater.

  • 226 Graeme // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:21 PM

    Benny puts it on a plate, Anita hits it wide. Damn, I could have scored that lol.

  • 227 TurkishFan101 // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:21 PM

    toonking

    No not really, its not about being lazy, marvo and ben arfa are two both quality players that dont have good coaches.

    Only player in the box is Anita, I F**KING RB. Get the cockney clowns out, and the stupid clueless coaching staff that are followed out.

  • 228 Mike's Iron Curtain // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:21 PM

    Breaking their lines more often with HBA and Marveaux on the pitch, quelle surprise!

  • 229 The next Mike Williamson // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:21 PM

    let’s blame Ben Arfa & Marveaux.

  • 230 toon kk // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:22 PM

    I’m not joking we’re the worst team in the premier league at the moment.
    Thank god we had Remy and his goals or we would be playing in the championship next season

  • 231 Big Pappa Cissé // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:23 PM

    Didn’t you know lads, Hatem is overweight, doesn’t work hard enough yet he has basically created two clear goal scoring chances in the last couple of games from sub appearances .

    Some people haven’t got a clue and if you want HBA sold then you wan shot with sh*t .

  • 232 JP...from The Rock // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:23 PM

    Taxi for Anita!! bloody hell how could he miss that. He’s been awful all match and then he does that to top it up lol

    We need more creativity from our midfielders. HBA again for the second match in a row put it on a plate after great individual skill. Who says he’s greedy?

  • 233 Mike's Iron Curtain // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:24 PM

    Shane Ferguson has more natural talent than Dummet, ost his way at Birmingham though, should have been given the same backing as Dummet. Better crosser, dribbler and quicker.

  • 234 jimiley // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:24 PM

    A couple of class players and we can be top 4 next season. keep the faith in Alan. A couple more and we can win the league. We are nearly thereboys.

  • 235 Ancientcoptic // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:24 PM

    Well… I just got home to find we are 2-0 down & De Jong got a starting role!

    Not to mention we are playing jurassic 4-4-2 against an Everton side set up to play against old formations like that.

    Is there any point tuning in… yawn.

  • 236 toonking // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:24 PM

    when you missing easy chances like cisse’s one against palace and the one anita just had then it’s certain they are just rubbish players.

    remy or cabaye would have had them for sure.

  • 237 Marty-Toon // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:25 PM

    That’s the old Marveau

  • 238 Toon1978 // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:25 PM

    I do not understand why we did not start with HBA and Marveaux. We look 20 times better.

  • 239 TurkishFan101 // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:25 PM

    Dummet is still on, well nufc fans. Get used to these average medicore playes in our team, because of fans that have lowered their expectations down to a point where NUFC is no longer a club but a business operated faculty.

    The fans that keep on giving in and going to matches have no reason to not boycott the matches and season tickets. At the end of the day if you cared you would get these clowns out by doing the right thing but guess its not happening as the majority seems happy with the way our club is moving. Well done, our club is completely gone.

  • 240 Toon Tang // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:25 PM

    deliver like a blind postman

  • 241 JP...from The Rock // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:26 PM

    Compare the impact HBA makes to Marveaux when he comes on as a sub. Miles apart. We need more HBA’s!

  • 242 GeordieTwo // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:27 PM

    Johnny it’s Alan again. I’m just fed up with this. I’m turning it off! No I won’t change me mind Johnny! This is all your fault. If we had gone serpentine earlier it would have all been different.

  • 243 Oleg G // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:27 PM

    So true.

  • 244 70TWO // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:27 PM

    At least its not four goals down.

  • 245 TurkishFan101 // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:27 PM

    Toon1978

    Why do you think we dont start Marveaux and Ben Arfa? the same reason why Dummet starts in front of Haidara, the same reason Mbiwa get dropped even if hes playing quality along side Williamson, (NOT RB, ITS NOT HIS POSITION).

    The same reason fans are taking all the cr@p and still go to matches to pocket fat cockney b@stard’s pocket.

  • 246 jimiley // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:28 PM

    Keep the faith in Alan P and de Jong to get us top 4 spot. Big Mike will spend 100 million in the summer > Good times are coming.

  • 247 Marty-Toon // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:28 PM

    A couple of class players and were top four you say!
    A couple in each position maybe

  • 248 Thump // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:28 PM

  • 251 Oleg G // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:29 PM

    That was so obvious. So so obvious.
    A defensive mistake. Again the defense.
    Don’t blame Hatem, don’t blame Marv.

  • 252 AusMagpie // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:29 PM

    How do you not save that?!

  • 253 Blofal // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:29 PM

    Not 3-0 again!

  • 254 Marty-Toon // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:29 PM

    Dummetts side again,a half hearted challenge by him.
    He should be benched

  • 255 Graeme // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:29 PM

  • 259 Mike's Iron Curtain // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:30 PM

    Ruthless. Make it look easy in front of goal, whilst we toil to get a single sight on goal.

    Wasted evening.

  • 260 Mike's Iron Curtain // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:30 PM

    The penny might drop with Pardew in a decade or so.

  • 261 Oleg G // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:30 PM

    I prefer to lose 3-0 and see Marv and Hatem for 90 mins.

  • 262 dufuss // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:30 PM

    and the mugs will keep paying the pennies to watch what

  • 263 TurkishFan101 // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:30 PM

    We break all the records for the wrong reason. Pardew is a legend, he’s made our club look like a joke since the time he stepped into St James Park.

    People that wouldnt take Roberto Martinez before, what about now???????

    Its too late for that now, go and buy your season tickets and help the fat cockney c@nt..

    Shola coming on for Gouffran, its already game over, just putting him on so we defend the score line from getting even worse.

  • 264 toon kk // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:31 PM

    Hello Alan? You still there? It’s not looking as good as we hoped. No. 0-3 now but on the bright side there’s very little time left. Shall I tell the lads to play possession football?

  • 269 JP...from The Rock // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:31 PM

    OMG Seriously Strolla Ameobi is coming on AGAIN instead of Armstrong! WTF! Why not put Armstrong on to give him some experience, the game is already lost.

  • 270 Thump // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:32 PM

    People that wouldnt take Roberto Martinez before, what about now???????

    Nope. He inherited a good Everton side and has managed to get by playing the same kind of football we played when we finished fifth. It’s a flash in the pan. Next season they’ll be scrapping for relegation where Martinez is most comfortable.

  • 271 Oleg G // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:32 PM

    Why this sub now? For what?

  • 272 Marty-Toon // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:32 PM

    Absolute cack.
    Shola for 2 mins

    Aye, another Pardew masterclass in how to end our opposition’s rotten run of form.

  • 275 santonthenewmaldini // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:32 PM

    We have been more attacking with Marveux and Arfa should give them more game time Gouffran has been poor at tracking back today anyway so why not give them a go

    De Jong was shocking today before he got took off Cisse actually looked decent but his confidence will be shot again

  • 276 Graeme // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:33 PM

    Oh, here is the answer to all our prayers – bring on Shola for injury time. Are they taking the piss or what??

    de dong is exactly that

  • 283 toonking // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:34 PM

    oleg

    maybe pardew’s tactics were not so bad after all, perhap he knew that as we miss sitters like the one anita had and we have got only 1 goal scorer in the whole team and 1 creative midfielder in the whole team, who himself can be in consistant at times.

    So it’s no wonder we are better off defensive.
    Teams like liverpool, city barca and madrid have got the best strikers and goal scoring midfielders in football that is why they are so attacking.

  • 284 BandB // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:34 PM

    Watch the replay of that last goal. The Everton break is actually held up. Look to the right of the screen at this point and you will see none of our midfield in shot. You wait and wait. Several Everton players appear, bombing forward. None of our midfielders appear.

  • 285 JAMSHA // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:34 PM

    I will say this again.

    I prefer that for the next few games we have this season, I want to see Marv and Hatem. I don’t mind losing, as we will lose anyway in more than some of those games.
    At least we can enjoy some pretty footy and enjoy our time.

  • 289 jimiley // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:36 PM

  • 290 Big Pappa Cissé // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:36 PM

    What some deluded fans may have finally learned today or what other people that know about football have known for weeks :

    . Haidara is a much better full bck than Dummet

    . Gouffran is wasted on the wing

    . De Jong couldn’t score in a brothel

    . HBA & Marv should be playing

    Don’t be absolutely silly, Martinez has done a great job and the tactics, influence and determination has shown that. Who are you trying to kid, yourself?

    People said the exact same thing about Pardew when we finished fifth. Martinez deserves full praise for what he’s done this season, but he’s playing with the squad that Moyes built. You can’t deny that.

  • 296 Oleg G // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:37 PM

    Well. We will have around 54 points in the end of the season give or take 2 points.

    How about 140 million

  • 298 Marty-Toon // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:38 PM

    Martinez is world class in comparison to Pards,they were a good tough side before he took over and now they’re quality.
    Didn’t see much from Marveau to say he deserves to start.
    Dummett should be benched as should Mbiwa unless he plays at CB.
    Willo is solid in defence but slows down our play enormously.
    Anita was decent at RB and Haidara at LB might help.

  • 299 toon kk // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:38 PM

    My seat is empty and it will remain so as long as this bunch of muppets are in charge
    It breaks my heart ,the club is rotten from top to bottom
    And it sums it up when our jan signing de junk is probably at best a championship player

  • 301 mattnufc // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:39 PM

  • 302 Ketsbaia9 // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:39 PM

    Dummett is useless. We are seriously missing Santon. His pace and ball qualities is a serious asset to us. Cisse, Marveaux and Ben Arfa did well today. Tiote did ok.

    It looks like were going to finish 7th.

  • 303 Blofal // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:39 PM

    Cisse and Ben Arfa are safe I think… DeJong wont get a contract.

    Absolutely no depth. Gouffran looked tired all night but we had nobody on the bench to replace him!

    tactically this staff has no clue.
    also coloccini should leave us, as he’s getting past it!

  • 309 Rotonda heights // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:42 PM

    Amazing all the numpties who said Martinez wasn’t good enough for us ! They’ve smashed us twice now even once when we had Cabaye and Remy.

    Martinez has done some very clever loans and buys but on paper our squad is arguably not much worse than theirs and we’re playing at home!

    For me Martinez is everything Pardew isn’t, on and off the pitch and it shows big time.

  • 310 Greebol1892 // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:42 PM

  • 312 Ketsbaia9 // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:45 PM

  • 313 davis_toons // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:46 PM

    Pardew just do not play HBA for some reason.

    RM have prove to plp that call him a lousy manager at Wigan.

    Remember the player that he have got in Wigan mostly wasn’t even intl.

    And he was able to get them to play professional possession football.

    Help to generated profits for the club every season. And still able to replace “unknown players” (not all)and get them to play good football.

    Just lacking a bit of quality to kill games off.

    But when they do have some qualities in the team…
    THIS IS WHAT HE CAN DO and THIS IS WHAT WE GET. Home or Away.

    of all the players and staff we should only keep the following:

    - williamson (as backup never disappoints)
    - santon (is a lot better than most of our defenders)
    - haidara (did look good in the few games he played)
    - anita (can be a decent backup player)
    - ben arfa (only one who can create something)
    - cissé (if he comes good, he’ll score again)
    - gouffran (not a good game but still a decent player)

    all the others should be sold or fired

  • 316 GeordieTwo // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:47 PM

    I see a huge offensive outburst coming against Southampton. One shot on goal (accidental, off Gouffy’s left testicle) and at least 1 other shot missing. De Jong will try to strike the ball towards net and fail. Benny will not start as he’s a bit out of shape. It will only be our 32nd game of the season after all.

  • 317 darrenfletcher88 // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:49 PM

    Not really true. RM have always play football in such a way.
    He just really need some quality players to keep the game off which he couldn’t get at Wigan.

    Will Pardew play the same player in the same position if taking over Everton? Everyone will doubt it.

    RM is a tactician. End of.
